Bump ‘n Grind is currently featuring a new Single Origin roast: the Nicaragua - Matagalpa. A lightly roasted approach brings out the complex layers of this bean from the northern mountain regions of Nicaragua. The Matagalpa region is famous for its lush tropical vegetation, most of the coffee grown in this region is shade grown in nutrient-rich, volcanic soil. Grown 700m above sea level, in a climate the locals refer to as “the eternal spring,” these beans go through a washed process before they are dried and shipped to our roastery in Kensington, MD. In line with our commitment to “conscientious coffee,” these beans are both certified organic and fair trade!
This week, we present another one of our fantastic Single-Origin beans: the small and mighty Ethiopia - Yirgacheffe. What might look delicate in demeanor, this bean packs a flavorful punch. An exemplary “Conscientious Coffee”according to the Bump ‘n Grind standards, we are proud to feature this lightly-roasted, naturally-processed coffee as a Single-Origin coffee for our drinkers, subscribers, and patrons!
Bump ‘n Grind is proud to be roasting select Single Origin coffee beans from our humble roastery in Kensington, MD. Our Single Origin coffees are small-batch, micro-roasted to bring out the distinct character and complexities of our beans. We roast our small batches daily to ensure our customers receive the freshest, most flavorful product. The beans are selected from the highest grades for specialty coffee, performing at 85 or better according to the Specialty Coffee Association’s 1-100 rating scale. This week, we are proud to be featuring the beautiful Uganda-Bujisu Single Origin roast at our pop-up coffee shop and cafe at Silver Spring Library.
At Bump ‘n Grind, we are actively trying to bridge the gap with our customers to provide a brand experience focused on the growth of our community connections, environmental stewardship, and being a socially-aware small business. This week’s Liner Notes shares the background of our signature bean blends, explaining the choices creating that “conscientious” cup we love to drink each morning!
